This master's plan is built for athlete's age 50 and older. It takes into account that as we age our bodies need more rest.
This 12 week summer training plan is built for anyone training with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided an eBook on the first day of the plan that contains testing protocol and explains how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
This plan is for the rider that can train 8-15 hours each week. Most weeks are 8-9 hours, with a couple weeks in the 13-15 hour range.
This plan assumes that you will either be racing or riding hard on the weekend so has 3 different weekend options built in.
*Please note that the hours in the sample plan reflect the total hours for the 3 weekend options.
This is a great plan for someone who is ready to make their summer the best ever! It's a perfect way to keep the fitness you have (even improve it) and sharpen and hone your sprinting and anaerobic power.
